The audience version of this second set (tape began with Help) was one of the first live tapes I ever had, back in ’78 or so. And now this! So there’s that whole thing about some of your earliest tapes being your favorites, but still, this Help>Slip>Frank has to be my favorite. There’s that passage in the latter part of Slipknot! when things settle down and they turn a corner, trotting out of it with a one-of-a-kind jam. And Franklin’s has some really unique, highly expressive leads -- notes and jams permanently etched into my psyche, delivering chills and smiles every time I listen. Just short passages they are, but the energy is passed to the listener and I’ve ran with it for decades now… just so fortunate to have my life intersect with this music in such a vast universe. And, oh yeah, GDTRFB !!!

Subject: Excellent Show
Tight, groovy '76. Wonderful Slipknot! jam in there.

I like the tight but not rigid grooves and the rhythmic interplay between the musicians in this era.

Long after they stopped letting us download and possess these shows, I am still coming to this site to stream in great shows during my workday, and I love it no less. It might be even better in a way. We can hear it and enjoy it but NOT possess it, which seems more in line with what the experience is meant to be, no?

Anyway great show, excellent sound.

Subject: What a Show!
Both sets are pretty amazing. The whole first set is played real well, lots of energy in the songs from the start. The BEW and Scarlet Begonias are fantastic.

Second set tears it up with some real unique jams in the Help-Slip-Frank. The Dancin' sandwich is pretty bad ass too. The end of the show ties it all together with a super high energy OMS.

Well if anything, it sure made my night!

Subject: Elvis's last go-round
What a treat! I never knew this show existed. I have always lived in the Indy area, and have great memories of seeing events at MSA. As a youngster, my mom and grandma took me to see Neil Diamond, John Melloncamp, and Billy Joel in the old arena. Seeing Pacers playoff games in that little, noisy place was great. It's so cool to see that the Dead played such a great show there, and even two years before I was born. MSA is torn down now, but it is worth noting that it is the site of Elvis's last concert.

Subject: Another excellent show from Fall 1976
This is a wonderful recording of a tight, fun show. I am convinced that the more people discover shows from Fall 1976 they will begin to place these tours in their personal top 10. The entire band is involved and there is great interplay throughout (check out Slipknot!). Garcia's voice is still sweet, Keith is taking risks with a variety of different tones and Bobby's rhythm keeps it all together.

Subject: Second Set sounds great
First SBD copy of 2nd set of this show available.

Help>Slip>Frank is classic! Small patch in Frank does not degrade the quality.

1976 was so underrepresented on the archive before Charlie Miller put up those Auditorium shows, Tower Theatre shows, and now these....

5 stars for performance, sound, and availability

I was actually worried that the sound in the second set may not be as good as the first. I was WRONG. The sound is amazing! The show is as well. Thank you Charlie.
